I’ve been renting the same car from Lionel for months now, and I will continue to do so when possible for every future work trip I have in Austin. The car is great, and the pickup and drop-off process is ideal. Really happy I found a reliable resource for car rental in Austin.

The best rental experience I ever had. Pradeep has a wide knowledge about the local places, ride arounds and many more. I highly suggest Pradeep place to hire or rent a car.

Toyota Camry 2019
This was a super easy car rental! Pick up and drop off was at a 7-Eleven in a safe and convenient part of town. The car was great and has the capability to link to your iPhone and project your screen for easy navigation and music selection. I would for sure rent this again if I come back to Austin. :-)
Alexandra P. - January 19, 2020

Shari was amazing and very accommodating throughout the entire booking and trip process. The car was great for our trip and Shari was easy to communicate with and very prompt in replying to any inquiries I had. If I find myself in Austin again and in need of another rental, Shari will be the first one I turn to. Thank you again for everything, ma'am Everett

The car is one of if not the best car I’ve ever driven! Steven was a great cooperative host and always keeps you informed and ready for anything! RENT THIS CAR! Super spacious and incredibly clean, not to mention it only cost me $7.50 for a half a tank of gas for fill up at the end of my trip! Best bang for your buc on turo in the Austin Area

My trip with Gunnar was great. Everything went smooth. The pickup/drop off process was well documented. I opted for the $10 return cleaning and it was a time saver. This was my first Turo experience and overall Gunnar has a nicely setup service along with the group that manages this rental. I'll be using Gunnar again for my next trip to ATX. One note. If you are flying in/out of the Austin South terminal (I believe that is only Allegiant and Frontier as of this writing) the location where you return the car does NOT provide a shuttle to that terminal. You will have to catch the shuttle to/from the main terminal, then catch another shuttle to the South terminal. This added about 30 minutes to our trip to the airport. Please plan accordingly.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2018
Best car rental experience to date. Communication was clear and the whole process, from start to finish is leaps and bounds better than traditionally rental companies. The car was perfect and waiting just a short walk across the street from where we picked up our luggage. Drop off was equally as easy. I can not recommend them enough.
Maria H. - January 27, 2020
Toyota Camry 2017
I can’t say enough!! Best car rental experience I’ve ever had bar none!! The car was beautiful, like new, and great features. Ali was awesome. To notch service, courtesy, and s very nice guy!! I’m in Austin a couple times a year, I will always rent from Ali!!!

had a great experience renting this Tesla from Vincent!! Without a doubt, this was the best experience I have ever had with Renting From Turo. I will absolutely call on Vincent the next time I need a car anywhere in Austin...particularly anywhere near the Airport!! Dwight

Great Turo Rental! We came from out of town and Nisarg was very accommodating on pick up and drop off. He was quick with communications and provided the car that had a full tank of gas and was very clean. He was very flexible with pick up and drop off of the location of the car that saved us time. The car is very nice to drive itself. Equipped with Apple CarPlay / back up camera, it was fun to drive around the city of Austin. Great experience renting from Nisarg!!
Sufy S. - February 28, 2020
Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class 2017
Absolutely obsessed with this car! Definitely an amazing grab & easiest rental I’ve ever done! Literally going to rent this again soon! Everything was so clean and perfect! Lorenzo, ahhhhh lorenzo! The greatest host ever! So quick in responding & quick to be helpful! If you wanna ride in style & keep things affordable, this is definitely the car you need when coming to Austin Texas!
Destaney C. - February 27, 2020

Can’t say enough about Kelley and Lucas. Amazing hosts. Super friendly and accommodating. And the Supra... oh man. People will literally talk to you at stop lights gushing over the car. You’ll never get tired of the exhaust burbles. Listening to the burbles at 20 mph is better than going 75 on the highway. No need for the infotainment system. Never been happier sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Thanks for the perfect 30th birthday experience guys. Best Turo deal in Austin. For real.
Simon L. - March 10, 2020

Pavel was an amazing host throughout the entire process and his selection of cars was fantastic. Next time I'm back in Austin I'll be looking to rent from him again!

He was amazing! We ended up having a flat tire while the trip and he was able to help us take care of the whole situation and get it all sorted out. And was understanding about timing when it came to pick up and drop off. I would recommend him to anyone looking to rent in Austin
Madelyn Lura L. - March 7, 2020

Hands down best car rental experience I’ve had! Great communication, flexibility, and the ride was smooth. I will definitely use this car again! Thanks Ritesh!

Smooth car rental transaction. The car was clean, runs great and Ritesh is quick to communicate. Thanks for a breezy trip!
Iris R. - May 28, 2019

Trey was very flexible with our flight being delayed, and our slight offset in departure time. Trey's car was actually nicer to drive than the Cadillac we rented on our last vacation from a normal car rental. Picking up airport curbside and on our way in 5 minutes is lightyears better than the traditional car rental experience. 5 stars!
Yao-Tian W. - October 28, 2018

Best renter on turo. If you're looking to rent a car, you have to go with May.

Toyota Camry 2020
This was a phenomenal place to pick up the car and drop it off at a 7-11. This was the fastest car rental check out ever! The car was clean and ready to go and cheaper than getting an Uber to go everywhere. The Camry also has great gas mileage! Dear San Diegans: This fleet is run by a former Marine from Pendleton! SemperFi!
Lindsay H. - January 21, 2020

Zuhair was able to accommodate us when our other car rental plans fell through. Very professional and a great guy. Brand new Camry with great gas mileage. We plan on using Zuhair the next time we come to Austin as well! Thanks!

Nice fun little car. Plenty of room for my stuff. Great for my last day in Austin. The driver seat is a little uncomfortable so I wouldn't grab this car for long trips but for what I needed it was great.
Alexander P. - March 12, 2020
Toyota Prius 2010
Ritesh's Toyota Prius was perfect for my weekend trip. I was able to conveniently pick the vehicle up near the airport without any hassle, and he was always willing to answer any questions I had. I will definitely be using this car during my next trip to Austin!
Derrion M. - March 15, 2020

Gilberto's Mercedes was exactly what I was looking for. It was very clean and just as described. He was very professional and kind which made the entire process perfect. As a woman traveling on her own, I felt save and would happily use his services again. It's nice to have a great luxury option in South Austin! I had a great experience with my first time using Turo.

One of my best trips so far! Car worked perfectly, even rented a extra day. No complaints.

Jaime was great! She dropped the car off at my house for the start of the rental. I drove the car out of town and really appreciated the unlimited mileage on this rental as I would have likely gone over the mileage cap on other cars. The car was spotless when I received it! I was using this rental as an extended test drive to see if I wanted my own Model 3. I was thoroughly impressed. Would rent again from her!
J.T. L. - March 2, 2020

Lucas was very helpful and accommodating. The experience was awesome!! The car was fantastic to drive and Lucas also helped with local recommendation and made this trip unforgettable!! Thank you so much! I will definitely book again when I return to Austin

As an Australian Tesla owner, renting David’s Model 3 for my week in Austin was incredible. David explained everything well and pick up and drop off was very convenient. Highly recommend his car if you’re in Austin, TX!

Was easy peasy renting from Vincent. The Acura was clean and fun to drive. Sure beats dealing with the airport rental car business.

Nicholas's Porsche 911 was a dream to drive! He was very clear with his instructions, set my expectations right and was responsive to questions I had during the trip. I'd definitely rent from him again when I go back to Austin.
Sai Kannan S. - March 10, 2020
Tesla Model 3 2018
Brian was very responsive and helpful. He was flexible about the trip timing and gave me a useful walk thru to get acquainted with the Tesla. This was a very useful rental in order to check out the experience of driving an electric car.
Brian M. - March 10, 2020
Lexus CT 200h 2015
Pick up and easy was so easy, and the car was exactly what we needed to check out Austin and surrounding areas. I would definitely rent with him again.
Marco A. - March 9, 2020
Porsche 911 2015
Where do I begin with this 911 GT3? Came here for a work trip and several colleagues and I rented a fleet of cars to go take out in the TX hillcountry and drive around Lake Travis area. Being a Porsche owner I somewhat knew what I was in for and this car didn't disappoint one bit. This car is an absolute blast to drive on the twisty roads as you can imagine. The high revving 9000rpm motor sounds like a formula 1 car or something under full acceleration as the car blasts down the road. Will DEFINITELY rent this car again next time I'm in Austin. If you're a car enthusiast don't this!
Tony S. - February 23, 2020
Mercedes-benz C-Class 2019
The 2019 C Class is beautiful and clean, and ZT is prompt, polite, and goes above and beyond every time I rent with him. Best person to rent from on Turo in Austin, hands-down.

Ian was an excellent host. He was flexible and accommodating. So, about the car. If you want to be driving the fastest car with the best tech in Austin then this is the car or you. It’s gorgeous. Seriously gorgeous. Highly recommended host and experience!!

Clean car. May responds very quickly first time using Turo while my car is in the shop. Much better than going to a car rental.

As always one of the best providers on turo, if not the absolute best provider. If you're looking to rent a car I would recommend May 100%
Edward H. - May 24, 2019
Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2018
The best car rental experience I’ve ever had. Very easy seamless process. Zuhair professional and knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s flexible and will work with you. I regret not renting from him previously. The car was clean, conveniently located downtown, and ready for me to drive away.
Dario S. - December 11, 2019

Excellent rental experience. The Volvo was a pleasure to drive. Nicholas was great at communicating throughout my rental period and was flexible with my return. I would rent his car again if needed in the future. Highly recommend.

Tom L. - March 3, 2020
Porsche Boxster 2008
Wow! What a car! This is a Boxter S on serious steroids. Everywhere you look on the car is a cool, lightweight, racing mod. Racing bucket seats. Racing steering wheel. Aftermarket racing pedals so you can practice heel and toe. It’ll match revs on downshifts automatically (For those of us that aren’t very good at heel/toe) Slick carbon fiber accents all over. Aftermarket exhaust sounds amazing. This car is just too cool. I rent fast cars on Turo every chance I get. For the price - this is, hands down, the most FUN per DOLLAR I’ve ever had on Turo. Thanks Brian -
Kenneth C. - March 4, 2020

Ben’s Tesla was the perfect addition to my first trip to Austin! Ben was extremely flexible and helpful throughout the whole process. Pickup and drop off were smooth and easy. I highly recommend and will definitely be looking for Ben’s Tesla on Turo the next time I visit Texas!
Jordyn K. - March 3, 2020

Roberto was very easy to communicate with and thankfully was flexible with pickup and dropoff. His Jetta was in great condition and was a solid choice for getting around Austin. It's got plenty of room, good mpg, and is easy to park. Definitely would rent from him again when I come back.
Hunter S. - March 10, 2020

I booked this car last minute and he was able to bring the car to Austin airport last minute! He also made exchange very easy and helped ensure we made our flight on time. Super cool guy and awesome car!

Gregg was amazing. He is extremely easy to work with. Adjusted my pickup time without any issues right away. Pick up and drop off are very easy. I didn’t have any issues with the car at all. First time using this and Gregg made it a very positive experience. I will definitely be using one of his many options when I return to Austin.
